Fleetwood Building Design and Construction Project 2
Showcasing visionary architect Charles Duncan’s timeless 1968 design, this retro abode, The Lovig House, fuses the authentic interior of 1960s life with contemporary, functional appliances to suit a modern family. As the homeowners were keen to maintain the traditional bright and bold interior from the home’s era, the team at Fleetwood Building Design and Construction set to work constructing an impressive new level underneath the house and a stellar swimming pool to be enjoyed on summer nights.
Stepping inside onto the heritage dwelling’s soft cork flooring, one is immediately drawn to the home’s central foyer and open-plan living spaces. The expansive family area stuns with its sunken lounge, internal brickwork, and Tasmanian stained timber in rich, warm shades. With timber-stained staircases for easy travel between levels, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors from PD Joinery that offer sublime views of the Yarra Valley, this vivacious property is an entertainer’s delight.
The traditional galley-style kitchen also embodies 1960s flair, complete with a red tile splashback and bold pops of colour throughout the timber joinery. The kitchen makes the most of its layout with a convenient butler’s pantry, additional overhead cabinets with undershelf strip downlighting, and quality Smeg appliances.
Nestled amongst gorgeous natural landscaping, the home’s unmissable pool is nothing short of luxurious, with a clear safety fence and stunning timber decking and steps. Aptly situated on the same level as the new build, this pool is positioned on four-metre board piers, meaning the outdoor oasis itself is able to float amongst the expansive yard. With an impressive 50,000 litre rainwater tank, double-glazed windows and solar panels, this energy-efficient heritage home is one to watch.
